From Tatiana’s TOMATObase::
Seeds were collected by Carolyn Male (NY MA C) in 1999 from a retired P.E. teacher Chuck Perry, who got the seeds from his cousin, Ed McCollum of Boston, who, in turn, got the seed from the owner/founder of the Neptune Harvest Co. Dr. Carolyn Male contacted the Neptune Harvest founder, and he said that a man came to the factory and asked if he could trade tomato fruits for seaweed fertilizer. This man was Anthony Neves of Massachusetts (now deceased), who brought the seed from the Azores, where he had been selecting for larger size, and he continued the selection in Massachusetts. Carolyn Male offered tomato gardeners at Garden Web tomato forum to name this tomato, and the consensus name was 'Neves Azorean Red'.
